This middle school has no idea what is about to happen when they get a new substitute teacher. Rush Revere seems different right from the start, and it is not only the fact that he has a talking horse with him. He can travel through time, and he takes two students, Freedom and Tommy, on an adventure right back to the 1620s for a look at the Pilgrims and their beginnings in America.
For the most part, the story moved quickly, and there were several near-death experiences. Limbaugh does a nice job of bringing you into the story. However, the characters seemed wooden to me, and the jumps back and forth through history make the story choppy. I know the author does not want to bog down the reader, but a little continuation would be good. This would be a good read for those who enjoy history and more action than character.
